...and introducing Baby McGee as "baby"

Hey! Say hello to Eyebrows McGee's brand new daughter, Anna Lucia. Seven pounds, five ounces; nineteen inches bow to stern; conspicuous lack of eyebrows but we'll let that slide until at least Q4. Here's mother and daughter, chillin'.

Staying in bad relationships

A few months ago, there was a post on the blue, linking to a question on captainawkward.com. It was about young women who stay in bad relationships. I can't find it. [more inside]

Trying to find an old post about a fake commercial

I'm trying to find an old post that appeared on MetaFilter some time back. It was a YouTube link to some kind of fake commercial, though I don't remember at all what it claimed to be selling, just that there was a woman doing the whole testimonial and it went slowly off the rails. Does anyone else remember this? [more inside]

Contact form bumpiness

Just a quick heads up: we've had a little trouble with some of our email list stuff recently; some contact form messages haven't gotten through in the last 2-3 days. Should be rectified soon, and now that we're aware we can get at the messages server-side so we can respond promptly and catch up on the backlog, but if you were getting radio silence over the weekend that's what's been up. Sorry about that!

Any interest in a MeFi day of service or volunteering?

Basically, I think it's rad that the folks in Chicago are cooking brunch for families at the Ronald McDonald House and think it'd be cool if other folks did similar things in their own cities, perhaps on one designated day. Just a thought, would like to know if that's been suggested before.

Take care of yourself and those you love!

It's a hard hard month in a hard hard summer. I just wanted to remind people that this is a great community, and we agree on more than we disagree on, and we should all look out for each other a bit. James Comey said before Congress yesterday that the only two things he has of value are the love of his family and friends and his integrity. MetaFilter has helped me develop both of those things over the years, and I hope it's been positive for others. So, we should support each other and love each other, and we should take it easy on ourselves when we need to do that. XOXOX

The best of Metafilter compilation*

Back in 2009 someone posted this question asking members for the posts they'd include in a Best Of Metafilter book with all the best advice from the hive mind.

But that was 7 years ago. So I'd like to ask the question again, 7 years later: Can you give me the link to the best things you've ever read here, something that actually changed your view of the world or made you a better person? [more inside]

A Policy Question

Can anyone explain the policy of not notifying an anonymous poster why or even that a request is denied?

post it!

You should post that. That link you saw would make a good post - you even said so. Post it! [more inside]

The most exciting news of all!
